My wife and I sincerely enjoyed this bicycle tour with Dr. Gardiner. We actually got started a little before our scheduled start time (everyone showed up early!) Dr. Gardiner's knowledge of the area's history is extensive, the history is fascinating, and the area is very scenic. I would recommend this to anyone - both young and old.

We booked a tour with Dr. Gardiner not knowing what to expect. Everyone in the group was local but not from Columbus. Dr. Gardiner gave us a wonderful tour full of information that appealed to everyone in the group. This included four boys ranging in age from 12 to 18 who really enjoyed the history information. We all learned a... More

1 day in Colombus on Easter Sunday, glorious weather, what to do ? Checked out trip advisor and Google and sent an email to Dr Gardiner asking whether he was available for a tour. A few hours later we have had a great afternoon, with some lively debate on some historical issues, a basic understanding of the historical significance of... More

I planned a weekend trip to Columbus for my boyfriend's birthday, and I found Dr. Gardiner's bike tour through Trip Advisor. We both love cycling so I thought that this would be a nice way to spend a few hours on Sunday. I couldn't have been more right! Dr. Gardiner is incredibly knowledgeable on all things Columbus. The best thing... More
